Nokia Ad Campaign Lashes Out at Apple

Nokia recently revealed a new ad campaign which promotes their devices over Apple's by criticizing Apple's stance on locking their devices. Primarily targeted at the iPhone, Nokia has begun promotion of their new campaign by hanging posters in major cities which feature slogans such as "the best devices have no limits" and "phones should be open to anything." The image below, snapped by a MacRumors forum user, was seen in New York city.

Nokia's suggestion that Apple is cheating customers of their rightful access to their phones is perhaps perfectly timed. Over the last week, countless iPhone owners who had performed unauthorized "hacks" or modifications to their iPhones, such as

Apple Discontinues 4GB iPhone, Slashes 8GB iPhone Price $200

After some technical difficulties yesterday, we're back online and are going to endeavor to update readers throughout the day on some of the more interesting items that came out of yesterday's Apple media event.

We'll start with the price slashing Apple announced to close the media event (yes, sort of backwards, but so be it).

Jobs announced that Apple would be discontinuing the production of 4GB iPhone models. Though not particularly surprising, this may have seemed daunting to those who wanted to get their hands on an iPhone without paying $599.

Apple, AT&T Share Prices Fall on iPhone Sales Fears

Shares of both AT&T (T) and Apple (AAPL) fell today based on news from AT&T that it activated only 146,000 iPhones in the first two days of the iPhone era, June 29th and June 30th. Though AT&T shares closed down only $0.35, Apple shares slid a whopping $8.81 or 6.13 percent.

Investors were shocked at the low activation total, as some analysts had estimated that Apple sold as many as 700,000 iPhones during it's opening weekend. Despite the lower than expected numbers, AT&T assured investors that all was well with AT&T, Apple, and the iPhone. Still, despite the fact that 40% of the iPhone activations AT&T reported were new customers, AT&T slid for the day.

Most likely, investor worry over AT&T's activation numbers is misplaced. One of the most important details to notice about AT&T's activation report, is that it omits one day of the iPhone's opening weekend - Sunday, July 1st. Many of you will recall that very large numbers of customers who arrived home with their iPhones were unable to activate their phones due to technical issues and backlog experienced by AT&T and Apple.

Chances are high that most of the iPhones purchased on opening weekend were not activated by AT&T until that Sunday, which fail to make the recently report AT&T activation statistic.
